WC2014 day 7 – The morning after

Got the Spain v Chile match all wrong. I really did not think Chile could play that well but their style of play was perfect against an out of sorts Spain. Australia seemed to get a fair bit of joy down the wings against Chile and with a very small defence this seemed a good tactic. Spain just kept going down the centre all the time and could not get their passing going. I wonder if sometime in the second half Del Bosque wondered why he had not taken Llorente or Navas with him to Brazil. Llorente scored more than Torres and Villa last season and would have given them a completely different option. If your team is not clicking in a short format tournament like the World Cup then you do need some sort of plan B to bail you out and at least raise confidence. Belgium bringing on Fellaini to score that header is the obvious option and has completely changed their fortunes.

Did not see Croatia but glad they won and that sets up a big match against Mexico to progress.

Had to completely revise my opinions now and will not be betting as much pre-match but rather waiting to see how a match pans out. The draws will not be affected by this though and am going for all 3 matches today to be a draw. Need at least 1 to hit.
